In my previous post I mentioned that we currently have a few positions open on my team. I got some emails inquiring about them so I thought I’d explain a little more.

Where do you work?
I work for the Northwestern Medical Enterprise Data Warehouse. We’re a part of Northwestern University, and we’re charged with storing and making available for research purposes all the medical data generated by Northwestern Memorial Hospital, the Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation, and the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. We’re an all-Microsoft shop currently storing over 20TB of data in SQL Server and growing.

What positions are open?
We have 2 positions open at the moment: Data Architect and Database Administrator.

Data Architects are responsible for designing our schema structure. They also design and maintain the SSIS processes that are responsible for loading data from source systems into the EDW.

The Database Administrator will be working with me, and will be focusing on the DBA needs of one of our campus partners, the Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation.

For full details, check out the official postings for Data Architect and Database Administrator.

Where are these positions located?
We’re located at Northwestern University’s Chicago Campus.

Can I work remotely from somewhere else?
Sorry, not at this time.

What’s the team like?
Our team is awesome! We have a great group of people with some diverse backgrounds, but we’re all really passionate about data. We take our work very seriously, but have a great time while doing it.

How do I apply?
If you have questions or are interested in either position, email us at
